Lower Elementary Age 6 – 9
From ages six to nine years old, students have entered the second plane of development. This plane brings about the development of the “reasoning mind” paired with a vivid imagination. Although abstract thinking is now possible, concrete materials are still necessary to help students achieve genuine understanding. Students need time and freedom to explore concepts of interest. “Big work” holds great appeal at this stage of development.
Subject areas include practical life, language, mathematics, cultural studies and science, music, library and media, technology, Spanish, art, and physical education. Learn more in our detailed curriculum guide.
